Hi i'm new to Dec 2008 Babies..When i saw this group and joined the first thing i thought of was all of us mothers of Dec. babies that deal with the "christmas" baby worry. Will people not come to the party cuz it's so busy around the holidays?....will my baby always get combined gifts?....and will it hurt his/her feelings when they get alittle older.....?I've had these worries and more! Trust me i know it's something mothers dont want to say anything about because we dont want people to think we just want gifts for our child..... Thats not the case at all, i know that as well as any of us..but will other people. It's the fact that we know how hard it is around christmas and the easy thing to do is by 1 gift, but that leaves use worrying that our child will grow up thinking he was in a sense less important. I'll be the first to admit...around christmas its all about decorating, gift buying, and the hustle of x-mas in my house. the approaching date of a birthday added to the hectic month can sometimes be looked over. My suggestion for making it still be "thier" day and carving out a special place for them around the holidays is.....have it as early as you can during the week of their b-day so it gives more time between "thier" day and x-mas. If you have a christmas day or eve baby maybe have the big celebration the weekend before, or heck two weeks before..what child doesnt like an early b-day. That way it gives the people attending a chance to buy seperate gifts and afford it also... And no it's not about the gifts but when your baby gets older a kid will be a kid and they'll notice..... Than you can make sure you have a very special celebration with just immidate family (ex:mommy, daddy, brother) on the actual day. If anyone else has this worry..., wants or has tips for making it special for your little x-mas birthday baby posts 'em here...im sure someone will find it helpful!
